Following the State Government’s Machinery of Government review in 2017, a number of Land Agency Reforms have been implemented to provide greater efficiencies and strengthen the Government’s ability to deliver priority projects such as METRONET. As part of this review, the Claisebrook Village Project Area (excluding the Royal Street Precinct) is programed for project handover, on or before 30 June 2020.

Project handover involves returning planning authority for the area to the Western Australian Planning Commission and local government, in this case the City of Perth.  This includes strategic and statutory planning and asset management.

Key points

  • The Claisebrook Village project has transformed a 19th Century industrial service yard on the city’s eastern doorstep into a modern urban village, while reflecting the area’s existing qualities – the river and its heritage.
  • Claisebrook Village commenced in 1992 and covers an area of 137.5 hectares. At the time, it was the State’s largest inner-city urban renewal project and one of the first medium density developments in WA.
  • The project area was formerly industrial land including the former East Perth Gasworks, scrap yards, contaminated industrial sites, empty warehouses and railway yards.
  • Today, Claisebrook Village is home to 1,450 homes housing 2,500 residents and includes more than 6,000 health, education and media employees.
  • Government investment of $127million has seen more than $680million of private investment in the area.
